Black Panther and Box Lunch Team Up to Feed America
In preparation for their highly anticipated new movie, Black Panther, Marvel has teamed up with pop culture retailer, Box Lunch to release a new line of merchandise related to the upcoming movie. Fans of all ages will be able to rock the movie-related clothes, bags, and accessories from the retailer’s website, just in time for the movie’s international release.
The collection features numerous articles of clothing pieces inspired by the fictional nation of Wakanda. Colorful patterned prints grace tops for both men and women. There are also a few shirts provided for those looking for a subtler look that simply features the movie’s iconic Black Panther mask. Pair one with the matching black baseball cap for a laid-back style. Needless to say, there is something for everyone, regardless of your style.
While the collection has many beautiful accessories, a little more variety could be offered. Two black cord bracelets with silver-toned beads imprinted with the mask ad a nice touch to any outfit. They can be paired with the long silver chain necklace featuring two onyx tooth charms at the end. They are functional enough to add a bit of class to a more casual look but can keep up with the colorful print tops presented in the collection.
There is also a classy wallet featuring the Black Panther mask as well as two watches and three themed key chains. Two of the keychains feature mini Black Panther Pop figurines, one blue and one black. The most original accessory in the collection is a beautiful purple tapestry throw blanket. The blanket is true to the spirit of the movie while being subtle enough for any home. I can see it as perfect for keeping warm when you go and see Black Panther in theaters.
I was really excited to see such a great collection of products from this movie at Box Lunch. A brick and mortar store just opened by me late last year. This store is a dream come true for lovers of so many different fandoms. Disney, Harry Potter, Friends, Marvel, and even Studio Ghibli – if you can dream it, they probably have it. I was able to see the Black Panther collection in person, and I can attest that the quality of the products is top notch. While I cannot vouch for the fit of the clothing, they seemed very well made and the colors of the printed shirts are extremely rich. I wish that there were some more pieces to the collection. A nice bag for example, like they have for the other Marvel heroes, would be a great addition. A jacket to pair with one of their nice tops might also give the collection a diverse edge.
